Quantum's StorNext 5 named as a Storage Product of the Year finalist in Network Computing Awards 2015

London, UK. 26 February 2015 — Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced that StorNext 5 has been named a finalist in the Storage Product of the Year category of Network Computing’s 2015 awards. As a high-performance, scale-out storage platform, StorNext 5 is designed to accelerate complex information workflows and deal with the challenges of capturing, sharing and preserving massive amounts of data associated with today’s most demanding environments. The Networking Computing Awards provide industry-wide recognition to solutions and technology and honour companies and products at the forefront of the evolving technology market.

Whether capturing video surveillance data, storing geospatial imagery, or collecting network traffic for cybersecurity, StorNext 5 enables users to manage the demanding workflows. And while each workflow is different, some things remain the same: the data is invaluable, the data is growing, the data cannot be recreated, and the data must be preserved — so it can be repurposed in the future. Providing the ability to manage data across primary storage, extended online storage, tape archive, and cloud tiers, StorNext 5 delivers the optimal combination of performance, scale, flexibility, and economy without compromise.

Network Computing magazine will announce the award winners at a ceremony on 19 March 2015 in London.
